15k Citrine Earrings Circa 1820
*PP 0223* The hallmark of Georgian jewelry is its incredibly ornate metalwork. Only hand fabrication could achieve this level of artistry. Furthermore, hand-crafted jewelry doesn’t have porosity (surface pitting in the metal).
This metalworking technique, very popular in the 1820s and 30s, involved intricate wirework designs. Cannetille resembles embroidery-inspired filigree.
These earrings have a centered, gorgeous citrine stone and also feature pansies, a token of remembrance, within the goldwork.
Giving a citrine stone or citrine jewelry as a gift can be a symbol of hospitality, friendship, hope, and happiness. Wearing a citrine is associated with wishes for increased self-esteem, good luck, and emotional harmony.
